Tropical Matcha Smoothie



Want to take a trip to zenergy paradise? Blend up this smoothie and you'll be sailing away on a mental vacation in no time 🌴🌞 Bright, tropical flavors combine with the power of matcha to bring you a one-of-a-kind drink that's both energizing and calming at the same time. I've made several variations, changing up the fruits and sweetness. Peaches are a great addition as well! Play around to find what you love. If you're new to matcha, you can learn more about the amazing benefits on my Matcha Guide.
